Giants GM Dave Gettleman and head coach Pat Shurmur said they were looking to change the team's culture after a tumultuous season on and off the field in 2017.
For S Landon Collins, he already notices a big difference being brought to the Giants with this new regime.
"They don't want no bulls--t, honestly," Collins told The Post's Zach Braziller. "We want people who want to win, we want people that want to play. We want people that's hungry and go on the field and do their thing.
"That's the kind of mindset I see. It's positive, it's more [getting] after it, and I would say back to the Giants way."
The Giants way of traditional, hard-nosed football is what Collins has felt in the team's first OTA. He says Shurmur has been a "cool, laid back guy" yet "stern" on the field. It's also the little things that he does like eating lunch with the players following practice that speaks to the type of vibe Shurmur wants to dish out to his team.
Collins is taking notice.
"Just actions," he said. "Actions speak louder than words. Throughout the day, how they carry themselves [is impressive]."
The Giants way also involves no off-the-field distractions, nothing that can take the focus away from the game. There was more than enough of that in the locker room last season, and Collins was a part of it as well. His rift with fellow teammate Eli Apple made news when their feud escalated to the Pro Bowl safety calling the young cornerback a "cancer" on the radio.
But just like the Giants fixing their own problems this offseason, Collins did as well.
"It was a great building [experience], getting on the same page, and making sure [we know] how we feel about one another," Collins said about the conversations he had with Apple this offseason. "That's my little bro."
Collins and Apple both went down to Puerto Rico to help with Hurricane Irma relief as well.
With all the distraction out of the way and the excitement of having a new staff instilling what the Giants are all about, Collins just wants to get back on the field to experience it for real. He is currently sidelined due to a fracutured forearm he sustained in Week 16 last season, and one that required a second surgery to repair the break.
Collins said that he is optimistic it will be fully healed within two weeks, and he will hope to be back on the field for mandatory minicamp. There may also be some anxioiusness from the fourth-year safety with a contract extension looming in the future. He will be a free agent after this season as his rookie contract expires.
Make no mistake, though: He has every intention of finishing his career with the Giants.
"I want to retire a Giant," he said. "My biggest thing was, whoever I was drafted to, was where I wanted to finish. My all-time goal is to finish as a Giant."
